I've Got the World on a String PreSchool Graduation Party with Evite


When Evite asked me to participate in their Top Party Pro Contest this spring, I jumped at the chance!

The theme for the contest was a preschool graduation party and I was given a chance to preview some of their brand-new graduation designs that were just added to their site! Then, I got to create an entire party around it! 




Not only do I love the colors, but I have a not-so-secret obsession with globes and maps. 
So, this theme is perfect for me!

I focused on two major elements of the theme, globes and string! Then, I tried to come up with as many ways as possible to incorporate those into my party. I can't wait for you to see.

Spring Entertaining with RO*TEL and Bud Light Lime-A-Ritas!

This post is sponsored by ConAgra RO*TEL.

Is there anything better than spring weather? In the spring, my family eats on our patio as many nights as we can! It's less clean-up and it's just so nice to sit in the fresh air! We can invite our friends over, watch the kids play in the yard and enjoy ourselves with drinks and dinner. We love easy, last-minute entertaining like that! 

So today, I am going to show you how to make a SUPER easy, quick dip for all your spring entertaining.  Here in the south, every home cook worth their salt always has RO*TEL in their pantry! I mean, it's a staple of every kitchen! We use it in practically everything! But, have you ever put it into guacamole? YUM!  The green chilies and tomatoes give it so much extra flavor! And, the best part is that you can just open the can and pour it right in, no chopping required!
 This RO*TEL Rockin' Guac recipe is a winner! 

Mexican food is a crowd-pleaser any time of the year, but spring and Mexican food are the perfect combination with Cinco de Mayo right around the corner! Try this yummy RO*TEL Rockin' Guac dip at your next party or just make it alongside dinner one night!


And what is better than margaritas with guacamole? This RO*TEL Rockin' Guac pairs perfectly with Bud Light Lime-A-Ritas!  I had never had a Bud Light Lime-A-Rita until recently, and hello delicious! It's the perfect combination of beer and margaita and it saves me the trouble of having to actually make a margarita by just picking up these up a 4-pack of these and carrying them home. Pour them over ice in a fun glass, or just drink them cold right out of the can. 

So, zest up your next fiesta with RO*TEL's Rockin Guac and Bud Light's Lime-A-Rita! 



RO*TEL Rockin' Guac Recipe: 

Zesty Dip in a Dash
All you need:

3 pitted and peeled avocados
1 can of zesty RO*TEL® Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
A squeeze of lime juice

All you do:
Mash the avocados in a bowl, stir in the remaining ingredients, then season with salt and pepper.
I don't know about you, but this would make the perfect dinner for me! I could sit down with this guacamole and some Lime-A-Ritas and be completely happy! I know you will be too! And don't forget to visit the RO*TEL page for a printable version of their Rockin' Guac Recipe!
